  1. To make zabaglione: In the top of a double boiler, beat yolks and 4 tablespoons sugar until smooth and pale yellow. Place over simmering water and gradually beat in Marsala. Continue to beat over simmering water until soft mounds form, 5 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a cool bowl, cover and refrigerate 30 minutes.
  2. Whip double cream with 2 tablespoons sugar until soft peaks form. Fold in mascarpone and zabaglione. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour.
  3. In a small bowl, combine coffee, 2 tablespoons sugar, brandy and vanilla. Arrange 16 lady fingers in the bottom of a 23x33cm or similar sized dish.
  4. Spoon about 1 tablespoon of coffee mixture over each biscuit. Lady fingers should be soaked, but not soggy. Spoon one-third of the cheese mixture over the lady fingers and spread evenly. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon cocoa. Repeat layering twice. Cover and refrigerate 5 hours before serving.

my italian mom in law used to make her tiramisu at christmas and easter and i never got her recipe,, this however is just as wonderful,, a true treat... will always use this now for our special occasions,,,-06 Dec 2015


Well, my first time making, and boy I was impressed. I compared recipes and many were similar but the quantities in this recipe were easy to acquire and assemble NO WASTE ie: only needing 1 tub of cheese, 250 ml (1 cup) of whippig cream etc. Only thing I wished being a virgin TIRAMSU maker was to have a bit more detail about the importance of creaming the cheese before adding the egg custard, I did well but if wasn't perfect. So my tip would be to have the cheese room temp and use a heavy duty rubber spatula to work the cheese so it is soft and NOT curduy, but then again it could have been my brand of cheese. LOVED THE RECIPE-28 Mar 2004


This is a very good tiramisu. By using a zabaglione the problem of uncooked eggs is eliminated. Make sure to use sweet marsala. There is a recipe for ladyfingers submitted by Roxanne that is good.-02 Feb 2001

    I can recommend going to a site that has a lot of information on this subject.

    It is a pity, that now I can not express - it is compelled to leave. But I will be released - I will necessarily write that I think on this question.

    I regret that I can not do anything. I hope you will find the right solution. Don't despair.
